Rusty Nail

We all have a go-to nail colour (or is that just me?) and mine would be a corally orangey red – brilliant for Spring and Summer and nice with a tan but by the time Autumn comes around this could do with a bit of an update.

As an alternative to all the lovely Fall palette rich winey reds and purples – let me suggest…Rust. It’s basically Summer’s orangey red with a hint of Autumnal brown to sludge it up a bit. (Sounds nice right?) Except despite the fact it’s all over AW 15/16 fashion collections, it’s not massively represented in the nail polish aisle. 😦

BUT here are some of the few I’ve found with the help of the lovely @THEEJUDE of Sugar and Spice who kept her eyes peeled for this weirdly elusive colour.

MavalaMavala do a lovely one,

no 82 ‘Samara’ butter

So do Butter London it’s called ‘Vintage’


Then there’s Essie’s ‘Alligator Purse’ opi

and OPI’s ‘Deutsch You Want Me Baby’ (who makes up these names?) which has a bit more sparkle, if that’s what you’re after.

**USEFUL TIP** Interestingly nail polish also prevents actual rust, so now you know what to do with your half empty bottles you don’t want any more. Am thinking of giving my clapped out old bike a bit of a paint job later. So that’s Thursday sorted.
